Peter Berg Says No New FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS Movie
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Ever since Friday Night Lights, arguable one of the best shows ever to hit the air waves, went off the air in 2011, rumors about a possible film follow-up have been circulating, among fans and cast members alike.
Co-star Connie Britton recently indicated (via the LA Times) that one of the major hold-ups to a potential film was a lack of interest from Kyle Chandler. In an interview with MTV last year, he stated:
My general attitude about Friday Night Lights is, it was a great movie with Billy Bob [Thornton]. It was a great TV show. I never had more fun doing anything. [...] But they ended it at exactly the right time, and exactly the right way as well.
And now so does executive producer Peter Berg. In a recent interview with Collider to promote his upcoming LONE SURVIVOR, Berg stated:
“There’s not gonna be a movie. We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn’t; I’ve come to believe it’s probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it’s gonna happen.”
So it's sounding pretty official now. And, honestly, I have to agree with the sentiment. As much as I would like to see more Coach Taylor locker room talks and spend more time watching Eric and Tami being the perfect husband/wife team on planet Earth, I don't see how the concept or the story could possibly benefit from the addition of a film. The series got a fantastic ending when it went off the air, and I wouldn't want to see any of that undone by adding another movie to the mix.
What do you guys think?
